There have been a lot of advancements in technology allowing people with disabilities to live as independently as possible. Just within my lifetime, I’ve seen wheelchairs become more streamlined and powerful. Cell phone technology gives us the power to communicate with the world via the internet.
But one of my favorite pieces of technology is the modification of vehicles. The ability to customize vans and trucks gives people so much independence and freedom. Have you ever wondered how these vehicles become equipped with ramps or lifts?
Conversion companies like VMI and Braun have presented new possibilities for the disability community to travel. Check out the video below to see how a standard mini van gets transformed to be a valuable piece of equipment for myself and others who have disabilities.
